One understands the importance of something only when it is not present in one’s life.

  • Due to society’s restrictions, Krishtakka could not study at the right age.
  • Always missed studying learning.
  • Realized the importance of education, especially when she found herself to be completely dependent on her granddaughter.
  • Granddaughter, despite being a girl, was made literate by her grandmother - Keeping in mind the void she had felt in her life all along.
  • Grandmother - quite radical, liberal, modern in making her children and grandchildren literate when she herself had been the victim of society’s restrictions.
  • Grandmother - determined - in making her granddaughter literate by going against the society norms.

Detailed Answer :

One understands the importance of something only, when it is not present in one’s life. Due to society’s restrictions, Krishtakka could not study at the right age. But she always missed studying and learning. She realized the importance of education, especially when she found herself to be completely dependent on her granddaughter. She felt helpless when she couldn’t read ‘Karmaveera’. She made her granddaughter literate despite her being a girl. She did so keeping in mind the void she had felt in her life all along. We can call the grandmother quite radical, liberal and modern in making her children and grandchildren literate when she herself had been the victim of society’s restrictions.
